Amish Baked Oatmeal



As soon as I saw this recipe in my Gooseberry Patch Best Ever Casseroles cookbook, I knew I had to try it. I almost feel obligated to try out recipes that have "Amish" in the name, considering I live in the heart of Amish country here in PA. Whoopie pies, shoofly pie, homemade root beer... They are known for having the best recipes, and this one? Totally lives up to expectation! With all the sugar, this is definitely a special occasion breakfast. I'll be putting this on the menu for my annual Thanksgiving breakfast - you're in for a treat, family!


Amish Baked Oatmeal
Gooseberry Patch Best-Ever Casseroles Cookbook
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons oil
1 3/4 cups quick-cooking oats


In a medium sized mixing bowl, beat egg. Add rest of ingredients except oats and mix thoroughly until well combined. Add oats and stir. Pour into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.



Eat it plain or in a bowl with some cold milk. Tastes like home!

  10. This looks really good! I have made Amish friendship bread and whoopie pies. I really have a hard time believing that the Amish really eat that much sugar, lol!

    1. LOL, Christine. I know, between the sugar and the lard... they sure do know how to cook, though! Everything in moderation, right? ;)

  11. I really dislike all of the oatmeals I have ever tried but this looks SO good... I definitely need to give it a test. Maybe I'll like it with not so much liquid :)

  19. I have made this 4x in the past two weeks. My family loves this. I do recommend using half the sugar. I made it the first time with all the sugar and found it very sweet and I like my sugar. This morning I doubled the recipe and used a bit less than the half cup called for. It was perfect.

  20. Made this today I changed the butter and used coconut oil and added a little cinnamon very yummy

  21. I made this tonight and added molasses, brewer's yeast, ground flax, chocolate chips, bananas and walnuts- sort of like a lactation cookie and subbed half the butter with coconut oil. It was delicious! Thank you!

  23. This is delicious! My 12-year-old son says it's the best oatmeal he's ever had. I added apples and cinnamon to it the first time I made it. Made it again this morning, adding apples, cinnamon, raisins and walnuts. So yummy!

  24. And always make sure it's 100% organic (some companies load their superfood
    up with Niacin and other non-organic components -- go for the organic green superfood
    and avoid the Niacin hangover). If you choose diet shakes, be careful to choose those containing more
    fiber with less sugar. Blueberries Chock filled with anti-oxidants and also phytoflavinoids, Blueberries are also high in potassium as well as ascorbic acid.

  25. I have made this every week recently and everyone loves it! The only change I've made is using coconut oil instead of butter (it's just what I had on hand) and it gives it GREAT flavor!
